World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) President Ernie Blom has praised the release of ISO International Standard 18323: Jewellery - Consumer confidence in the diamond industry. "ISO notes, very clearly, the issues that the WFDB has been emphasizing for some time: the need for integrity and transparency to ensure that consumers have total confidence in our products. Buyers do not usually have the technical knowledge to understand the many aspects of diamonds and so they are reliant on correct and honest labeling," Blom said.
